Organizer/AuthorSacPeace
As the 2012 election engulfs the mass media, Democrats and Republicans alike will be falling all over themselves praising “free markets,” “free trade” and “free elections.” Both of the leading presidential campaigns promote “American exceptionalism” – the dangerous idea that the U.S. stands above everyone else in the world. What is the reality behind these myths? Whose interests do they serve?
Join us for a presentation and discussion on these issues with Richard Becker, author of “Palestine, Israel and the U.S. Empire,” and the new pamphlet, “The Myth of Democracy and the Rule of the Banks. Becker is also the Western Region Coordinator of the ANSWER –Act Now to Stop War & End Racism – Coalition.
